pressure? absolutely. but the pressure will be coming from prime minister benjamin netanyahu. iran has been his number one issue. he said it over and over again. he was standing up in front of the united nations general assembly last year. you remember that day. he took a big pen. there was a cartoonish looking bomb, but he talked about where he thought iran was and how close they may be to obtaining a nuclear weapon. and he said in the spring or the summer. now, his timetable differs from the obama administration's timetable. they believe that if iran does decide it wants to make a nuclear weapon, then it's a year out. so they differ in that. but there is certainly agreement on what to do about iran. and both of them have said that the red line is, iran must not obtain nuclear weapons, and for iran's part, iran has always said that it is not trying to do that, but only using it for civilian purposes. ashleigh? >> i want to also, sara, thank you, bring in jessica yellin, our white house correspondent, our chief white house correspondent. jessica, it is no secret that americans do belie

divide with benjamin netanyahu, who is still cobbling together the last piece of the coalition government, will anything change? obviously you're no stranger to the ill will between our countries and that is supposed to be a fence, building effort. >> well, i'm all about end results and not about words and trips. it's amazing to me that this is the president's first trip. he went to turkey and gave a speech. he went to saudi araina, cairo and made his speech about reaching out and building bridged with the muslim world. now we see israel in the neighborhood that is absolutely unconscionable and threatening to its security. so, the faith behind the doors, nicolas sarkozy, the way treated prime minister benjamin netanyahu previously, i don't think anything will change. the president saying we're moving our embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem and recognize that jerusalem is the rightful capital but if you go back to the dnc convention, they had to add back into their convention platform that they would even recognize the rightful capitol is the modern day state of. i want to see so

palestinians want settlement building to stop. benjamin netanyahu says no. can we ever get them to the table with preconditions? >> no, not with preconditions. i think the president really dodged the one headache he created for himself in the first term, when was to demand a comprehensive settlement freeze, which no israeli prime minister would agree. to so i think you will not see a resumption of formal negotiations. you will see quiet contacts between the israelis and palestinians and a lot of frequent flyer miles for john kerry, having separate conversations with the israelis and the palestinians to see whether or not there is a basis for some sort ofay agreement. but in the end, let's face it, no one ever lost monobetting against arab/israeli peace. >> jamie: what is at stake if it doesn't happen? >> i think a lot. there are a lot of kinetic issues, sir why's imploding, which is very, very source. iran, centrifuges are spinning. we can present the option for a two-state solution, but it is not the key to middle-east peace and stability. we are confronting a region that is fille
